I have not tried the Nano versions but can attest to Rare Bear, Recommend going with the mini's versus the nanos. Why? The Mini's are small enough. Nano's will be a handful. Forget about the LG. These are all basically hand launchers and belly landers.

I had the AT-6 Texan - Not recommended. Flew like a drunk squirell. The best of breed is the Rare Bear and the Sea Fury .The Spit is getting some good reviews as of late . For an adrenaline rush, the Rare Bear will go 100+, faster than my Skyangel EDF's. They had a BF ME 109. These planes are very durable and easily repairable. Cheap thrills to say the least ! I have 3 in the 50mm edf series( F-16/ T-45 and Katana)
Banana Hobby (Blitzworks) sells them with gyros now. The other sources HobbyB( Canada but actually ship from China) are Toysonics( California) and HK ( Funfighters)
Give them a try. The nice thing is everything is basically transferable from one plane to the next. Common motors, esc's, servos in case you trash one. You can then buy the airframe only version.
